Did you hear??? Mississippi Aquarium, located in Gulfport, is opening its doors on August 29!

The team is really excited, and while they’re waiting for the big day, they are keeping Mississippians updated about all the happenings as they prepare to open. For example, recently they got their newest residents – seven gorgeous stingrays that are settling in very well. Anyone can follow the newest updates and videos on their Facebook page.
